Year of Projects: Everybody say "Bo"!

It's been a while since the last update, but my Year of Projects* continues to make steady progress. By the end of September there will be two more finished skeins of spindled yarn to add to the growing list, I will be casting on a 'proper' handspun project next week for the SAL/KAL, and this weekend I'm working on a little YoP stash-buster...

Bo peep scarf. Year of Projects

It's Bo Peep Scarf from the book Woodland Knits - a cute design and very easy - knit and purl stitches and some simple shaping. The yarn is Drops Fabel (106) held double with the Nimu Kidsy from my first visit to Unravel. These have both been lingering in the stash for quite some time and are working up beautifully together - the hand-dyed kidsy has a subtle variegation and so adds depth and character to the plain single-coloured (and very inexpensive) sock yarn as well as a beautiful halo and sheen. It's going to be so soft and floppy it'll need some severe blocking when it's finished. After casting on Friday evening, this has been a perfect 'handbag' project for the weekend, and knitting it when out and about meant I got chatting to some local knitters I hadn't met before, which is always lovely.

*You can catch up with the other YoP-ers on the Ravelry group, and see my full list of projects here.

  4. Those yarns look fabulous together and it will be so lovely and cosy to wear - a perfect present for yourself.

  5. This scarf will be so cute. I love the idea of wearing it in a bow. I know I've Pinned something on how to do that with a regular scarf. I'll have to try that.

  6. The two yarns look beautiful together. I think it's going to be lovely!

  7. What a sweet scarf---your color choice is impeccable. It reminded me that I was planning to do head bands w/ bows for Christmas gifts this year! I have enjoyed all your snaps of Archie on Instagram-he is adorable. :)
